Oh boy. So I am a very very old VEGA player, I have a beta ID, woah cool. I am really really outdated in tech,

Just about the only good tech I have right now is Manifold I, Vector Torpedo I, Aurora Ray II, Burst Ray I, and Nova Ray I. I don't know how I can catch up the fastest way possible but I would like to know so I can get into the game again since I've been on and off for a while. This time I intend to stay.

    Upgrade your bridge /fleetbay /storages and factory continously to max (takes several months). Try to get more dps weapons/a carrier + squads in planet or sector strike. Try to grind for a guardian hull +tech in the many events that will come during the several months you will be upgrading. If you can make it that far, you will have the persistence to continue but not that by that time, your top stuff is already out of date.... (if vega hasn't stopped by then anyway)

    Be careful not to throw away any thing.  The hull that is possibly obsolete may be useful in many scenario's.  If one plans to get res in planet and or sector events  look to have many hulls to use.  I find that even with the longer repair time having many hulls of the proper type is advantage.  Unfortunately the next phase is almost here.  Ask around and find out what others are using.

    hit all the different strikes out there and grab all the tech possible and upgrade everything. Getting the MK ups is a huge advantage to the lower tiers they help a lot. Learn how to pilot and get in a good clan that will help you learn and don't throw away any ship you have already made. You would be surprised with how many times I have relied on the older tech and ships to help me get the current tech. Make auto fleets, they can fill in the gap when you have exhausted your main fleets.

    Im also a long time player and have recently been going inactive because of how badly kixeye has been **** up.. I used to play 3+ hours DAILY, but now i dont clock in more than an hour a week. Theres no point in playing the game anymore. Theres no skill required to pilot ships, theres no balance in the game, theres just coins.

    You can get top notch gear and elite mark upgrades on everything with coins, but theres no point to that either because theres a new faction every few months. Hell, we havent even received all of the axis hulls yet and they released the maurader faction. To add to that, theres new damage types that are being added at random to ensure that your ship takes damage in events, forcing you to coin.

    At the end of the day, the game is dead. Theres no point in playing, Kixeye is simply milking what they can before the game shuts down for good.

    This.  This.  This some more.  No need to catch up until they fix the game.  Cut build times by 95%, cut refit times by 95%, add a refit bay and stop with the event spam.

    To catchup you'll need to buy lots and lots of coins...

    unfortunately I feel the same way at this point. love the game annoyed with the implementation so have been playing less and less. not worth it to keep up or catch up. never ending movement of goal posts.. more damage, less points, immediate obsolescence of tech and ships with multiple new factions per year with no time to build an effective fleet before its out dated unless you spend big.

     :D ...catch up???

    It will take you 1 year and 168 days +- to max out all buildings (miners and mines are NOT included B) )

    The upgrade to ship bay from level 1 to 16 will take 100 days

    The combat modules around 9 days to lv12. You have 14 (with bridge 7) thats 126 days and so on
